Disney has unveiled beautiful new concept art depicting how the hotly anticipated "Star Wars"-themed land at Disney's Hollywood Studios will look after dark.
It's an alternate take on the image released in July of Disneyland's theme land. You'll notice the lighting isn't the only thing that's changed: a generic X-wing has been replaced by the one piloted by Poe Dameron in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
The new artwork debuted this morning during a D23: Destination D presentation at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, where it was also revealed that the Star Tours -- the Adventure Continues attraction will add a new mission based on elements from the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode 8."
The largest-ever single-themed land expansions at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, and Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, the 14-acre “Star Wars” areas will feature as their centerpiece a Millennium Falcon attraction in which visitors can “actually pilot the fastest ship in the galaxy,” and another that places guests in the midst of a battle between the Resistance and the First Order “in a race against time.” Other attractions will include a street market, a cantina and an upscale dinner club.
Those, of course, are only the elements announced by Disney. However, one intriguing rumor has indicated that interactive “Force Opportunities” will be scattered around the lands, allowing visitors to “levitate” objects at certain times of the day.
Disneyland closed several Frontierland attractions in early January to make way for construction of Star Wars land. Disney’s Hollywood Studios likewise shut down numerous attractions on April 2, and removed the iconic Earffel Tower.
No opening date has been announced for either “Star Wars”-themed land.
